The interns will work on real client transactions and contribute as a valuable part of the team. Each one is assigned an associate mentor who will help him/her settle in.

By the end of the internship, you should have a good idea of whether the legal field is the career for you – and whether MoFo is the right place for you.The internship forms part of our recruitment process and upon completion of the four week program, candidates who wish to be considered for a training contract will be interviewed and assessed.
